Making the Case for Sustainable Procurement

Date:   Apr 08, 2020 - Apr 08, 2020
Time:   11:00 AM (EDT)

As businesses feel increasing pressure to serve a social purpose (e.g. beyond quarterly earnings), this is bringing sustainable supply chain practices into the spotlight. Nonetheless, gaining the budgetary resources to support a sustainable purchasing program means being able to articulate both the positive social and environmental impact (aligning purpose), and the case for how it will help your business (revenue, brand enhancement, risk avoidance, etc.). 

This webinar, hosted by Supply Chain Canada, brings together some expert views to help build your case for sustainable supply. An introduction by EcoVadis will provide context of eight “value levers of Sustainable Procurement”. Next, Bob Willard of Sustainable Advantage will overview his new, practical Sustainable Procurement Toolkit that helps manage and justify sustainable procurement. Then, Constance Boisriveaud, Sustainability Advisor (and previously Category Manager) at Cascades, brings real-world practitioner advice and success stories in supporting their purpose-driven goals through their sustainable procurement journey.
